About the Dolph Briscoe Center


The Briscoe Center will undergo a major renovation of the first floor of Sid Richardson Hall in 2016, considerably enhancing its exhibit and research spaces. While every effort will be made to maintain public research access to our collections, there may be changes to our policies and available collections due to construction. If you plan to conduct research at the center in 2016, please contact us before making travel plans to determine how the renovation may effect your research efforts. Thank you!

Please call ahead to confirm, 512/495-4518
